Desi's easy rice and chicken mix

My mom used to make this mix when we were kids. It's simple and versitile, freezes easily and you can add other ingredients to jazz it up.

2 cups cooked rice
1/2 cup salsa
1/2-1 block cream cheese (depending on how thick you want it)
shredded cheese to taste (whatever you have on hand)
4 or more cooked chicken tenderloins, or whatever cooked chicken you have on hand

Mix the ingredients together and serve as burritos.

Sometimes I add 1/2 cup peas or 1/2 cup corn, or both to the mix. It also tastes pretty good as a sandwich mix, or served sloppy-joe style over hamburger or hot dog buns.
Mix a double batch and freeze some-it thaws beautifully.
